Pixton is far superior to any other comic creation site on the web since the characters can easily be customized... Instead of the “usual” assignments given to students, Pixton offers another choice that allows students to be much more creative while using critical thinking skills.
– Keri Green
We used Pixton for the students to show their knowledge of imperialism. The children loved the program and its capabilities.
– Mr. Smith, Teacher
Pixton for Schools allows for student creativity in a very easy to use forum. I am a huge supporter of the service and know the students enjoyed using the software.
– Mr. Klingeman, 9th Grade Teacher
Pixton gave my students a creative option for retelling, reflecting on, and responding to the story we read. I could easily determine who really understood the text and who didn't by the product they produced.
– Ms. Mason, ESL Teacher
Students were interested and enjoyed using Pixton. Using the program was easy for most students and all got the hang of things quickly.
– Ms. Martin, 8th Grade
Pixton is wonderful. My students are using it to tell the stories of Edgar Allen Poe. Retelling the stories in Pixton has created an interest I had not seen before. It is wonderful!
– Ms. Sorrell, 6th Grade
Students gave considerable thought to story structure and sequencing. They enjoyed working on their projects in class and at home.
– Mr. Memmott, Computers Teacher
Pixton for Schools was a fantastic tool to promote further understanding, application, and authenticity to my LOTE (Languages Other Than English) classroom.
– Ms. Wong, World Languages
Very easy to use and manipulate the characters. Students enjoyed the freedom of movement and expression in the characters.
– Mr. Daniels, 7th Grade Science Teacher
Excellent for its role in evaluating a unit in science, social studies, language arts or in many other disciplines. In addition, it offers technology in a fun way that students enjoy.
– Mr. Worthen, Teacher
Pixton enabled my students to present their understandings of environmental issues in creative and exciting ways. Students were engaged throughout the process and the functionality was simple but also enabled detailed customisation for those students that wanted to extend themselves.
– Mr. Fitz, Grade 3 English
I needed my students to create individual comic strips about the Bill of Rights. Pixton had the perfect image library. And it was easy to use!
– Ms. Del Bianco, Technology Integration Specialist
We just completed a Cross-Curricular event about the Olympics. My students represented the country of France, and were able to create fantastic comics to show off the basic French they had learned. It is very user-friendly, and they loved being able to see and comment on each other's work!
– Ms. Butler, Teacher
My students created a graphic novel. I had them use the theme from Metamorphosis by Kafka and make his message in a setting and story relevant to today's teens. They were required to use symbolism, motifs, and other literary elements. Using comics made the application of literature fun and exciting!
– Ms. Franchois, Teacher
My students that don't normally want to write, were writing dialogue and loving it. After they completed their assignment on bullying prevention, they created other comics on different topics on their own. Comics are another form of writing, with a twist that students enjoy.
– Ms. Trella, 7th Grade
It enabled students who can't draw to present information in a graphic genre. It also enables teachers to create assignments to prevent plagiarism.
– Ms. in't Veld, Teacher-Librarian
This was a great program for my students. They created panels of events leading to the Revolutionary War. They had to illustrate through their panels the relationship each panel had to the war. They loved the creative parts, and were impressed with their final product.
– Ms. Boffoli, 5th Grade English
It is an incredible product. I have been creating a database of teacher websites and this product really stands out.
– Teachers First
Pixton offered my students a creative and fun way to use their communication skills in Spanish.
– Ms. Engel-Aiello, Grade 12
True innovation comes along only once in a blue moon. Pixton has found a way to redefine comics and transform them into both a learning tool and a social community.
– Steven Schneiderman
We used Pixton for pragmatics (social language and problem solving) because of the intricate features it offers for character's body language and facial expressions. It helped my students (who have written expression deficits) get EXCITED about storytelling.
– Mrs. Kemper
This was a different format than the norm for the students to convey their knowledge on a subject. The students enjoyed working in this medium. I really liked that the students could log in at home.
– Ms. Cooper, 7th Grade
I have never seen my students so engaged with a lesson. I was amazed at how much effort and creativity they put into their comics. Normally, their attention span lasts about twenty minutes. With Pixton, my students were focused for days!
– Colleen G., Social Studies
Awesome. I found it very well designed and I enjoyed the oversight the program gives teachers over their classes.
– Mr. Gray, Grade 11
It helped my students to better understand the play we were reading in class.
– Ms. Baran, 11th Grade
Pixton for Schools was great! Students had a creative way to demonstrate their knowledge and practice their technology skills. Your customer service is awesome!
– Ms. Anderson, 8th Grade Computers
Pixton.com is unprecedented in making comic strip generation considerably simple. With its simple click-and-drag interface, Pixton enables its users with a fast, easy, and interactive way to create detailed and professional-looking comic strips.
– Jason Alyesh
It was the perfect way for all of my 9th Grade English kids to get engaged, focused and thinking in a linear fashion both creatively and analytically.
– Mr. Crowe, 9th Grade
This "teacher's secret weapon" is worth every penny. Put one of the site's how-to videos on your interactive whiteboard and count the seconds until everyone is hooked.
– Christy Crawford, Technology
The students loved it. Brilliant software, easy to use.
– Ms. Fazakerley, Year 11 Computers
Pixton for Schools has huge value. The students were connected and found the learning fun. The programme engaged our low acheivers and they found pixton very rewarding.
– Ms. Grieve
Pixton has just worked flawlessly. It's pretty clear that you "get" education. There are so many nice touches that make life easy for teachers.
– Mr. Vogel, ICT / Physics Teacher
I was able to assess what my students learned in science through their comics.
– Ms. Page-Scott, Grade 6
My students enjoyed being creative with Pixton for Schools. We also like that you don't need to install it onto computers in the school. The online nature of it makes it so easy.
– Ms. Hill, Grade 7
Pixton for Schools was a safe way for students to learn and explore the world of avatars and comic creations. We found it to be the best program because it would save/export in a number of different formats!
– Ms. Berg, 6th Grade Math Teacher
Due to Pixton comics, not only have my students been better able to understand the scientific content of their lessons, but they actually look forward to reading the comic aloud, incorporating character voices, and finding out what we'll be doing that day!
– Mr. Bignami, 8th Grade Science
